Letter from Public Health North Tyneside for children testing positive during half term holiday

Dear Parents 


With the high rates of COVID-19 in North Tyneside currently, we are asking parents to let the school know if their child tests positive for COVID-19 during the half term break. 


If your son or daughter receives a positive COVID-19 test after Friday 23rd October 2020 please contact the school immediately on 07783871710 and and provide the following information: 


Name of child 


Class/year group 


Date of the COVID-19 test 


Does the child have symptoms? Yes or No 


What date did the symptoms start? 


What date did the child last attend school? 


It is very important that you provide this information so that the school can identify any close contacts that your son or daughter may have had in school during their infectious period. The school will then follow up close contacts and request that they isolate for 14 days to prevent further transmission of COVID-19.  


Please note that you should also report any close contacts that your child has had outside the school setting through NHS Test and Trace. 


Thank you for your help in this matter 


Yours sincerely 


Wendy Burke                                     Diane Buckle
